Understanding Funding in the U.S. Department of Education

The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) is the primary research arm of the U.S. Department of Education (US ED).  IES operates differently from the other US ED divisions, with its own proposal format, scoring system, and review process.  Developing a better understanding of the purpose, structure, and initiatives of IES – within the context of the Department – will enable UNH researchers to be more competitive with their proposals.
